â€œThe faculty and staff of the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music are dedicated to providing our students with the best opportunities to succeed,â€ said Denise Seachrist, Ph.D., director of Kent Stateâ€™s School of Music. â€œBeing an All-Steinway School is a significant way in which we can help our students achieve their goals. Through this designation, the School of Music visibly and aurally demonstrates its commitment to â€˜Excellence in Actionâ€™ by providing our students and faculty with top-quality teaching and performing instruments which challenge and enhance our talent, learning and teaching.â€
All-Steinway Schools demonstrate a commitment to artistic and educational excellence by providing their students and faculty with the best equipment possible for the study of music. Attaining the designation emphasizes the value the university places in the future of music education and artistic expression.
â€œWe are absolutely thrilled to have obtained this designation for the School of Music,â€ said John Crawford, Ph.D., dean of Kent Stateâ€™s College of the Arts. â€œWe are so appreciative to the many donors who helped make this happen.â€
A prestigious honor, the All-Steinway designation places Kent State in a select group of global institutions of higher education that exclusively feature Steinway & Sons pianos in their recital halls, faculty studios, practice rooms and classrooms.
